Hello Dan, As Vern mentioned you could always look at some of the open source utilities or work with a vendor like RJS who has done a lot of work with Postscript and PDF files. If you're open to working with a vendor on this project, feel free to contact me directly to further discuss your needs in detail. We just might be able to come up with a solution for you.

How about that with ghostscript you can print PDF files natively from iSeries? Stuff like that. Heh! -------------- Original message -------------- From: Dan <dan27649@xxxxxxxxx>
It's not a matter of whether we have the CDs to install it (and we're at
v5r3), but it's a matter of having to go through five or more levels of bureacracy to get it done. Along the way, it needs to be justified.
be more than "just wanna try Ghostscript to see what it can do for us". Might not be that bad for the test box, but the production box is where
do QA testing (no lectures please), and this is where we would utilize Ghostscript. - Dan -- This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing
